The Marina of Melendugno was again, like every year, awarded with the “Bandiera Blu” for excellent water conditions of the sea and beautiful beaches along the coast. Clean Waters, sometimes crystal clear with  50 shades of green and blue. A superb and excellent location to enjoy a beautiful swim.


The “Bandiera Blue” is an award given to Seaside Resorts which have to fulfill different criteria (33 in total) to be rewarded with this desirable award.

” The Blue Flag is an international award, established in 1987 and is awarded every year in 49 countries (initially only in Europe, non-European, more recently, with the support and participation of the two UN agencies: UNEP (United Nations program for the environment) and UNWTO (World Tourism Organization) with which the FEE has signed a global partnership Protocol and recognized by UNESCO as a world leader in environmental education and education for sustainable development).

Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded to seaside resorts that meet criteria relating to sustainable land management.

Main objective of this program is to address the local management policy of several coastal resorts, towards an environmental sustainability process. “
